Since the first iPhone, the bitten apple brand has become synonymous with status, innovation and performance. However, even with the arrival of the iPhone 15 it is important to adopt a critical approach, after all, a new device is not always synonymous with evolution. In this article, we will dive into the heart of iPhone 15laying out five compelling reasons to keep you from opening your wallet to join Apple’s new technological adventure.
Why is it not worth buying an iPhone 15?
Here are the top 5 reasons why you shouldn’t buy an iPhone 15:
1. Battery is too small
Let’s face it, the battery has never been the strong point of iPhones, especially the most basic models in each line, such as the iPhone 15. The new release has a 3.877 mAh (an advance compared to the iPhone 14 which only had 3,279 mAh) and which, according to Apple, is capable of lasting up to 20 hours away from the socket, but that’s not quite the case.
The new iPhone 15 now has a USB-C port, but its battery is still very small by current standards
Some tests carried out by YouTubers and other analysts show that the iPhone 15 leaves something to be desired in terms of battery life. In the channel video Mrwhosetheboss on YouTube, for example, the iPhone 15 only lasted 9h57 test min. Apple counters this result by saying that “all battery information depends on network configuration and various other factors” and that “actual results may vary.” In other words, don’t trust Apple.
2. Screen stuck at 60 Hz
While Android phones already come with a screen that supports high frequencies, some reaching 144 Hz or more, Apple implemented this feature on its iPhones only in 2021 with the launch of the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max. However, this technology continues to this day ( called ProMotion by Apple), is not present on any iPhone that does not carry the Pro in its name.
The iPhone 15 could have a refresh rate of at least 90 Hz
This means that if you buy the iPhone 15, you will still be stuck with a standard 60Hz screen. The standard iPhone 15 costs R$7,299, and although Apple calls it an “affordable” iPhone, that’s still a lot of money for most people. Almost all Android smartphones nowadays have a screen of at least 120 Hz and cost much less than that.
3. The same processor as the iPhone 14 Pro
While the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max have Apple’s latest and greatest processor, the A17 Pro, the regular iPhone 15 is powered by the chip A16 Bionic older — the same as the iPhone 14 Pro series. Just to be clear, the problem is not with the processor being from an earlier generation, but rather how much you will pay for it.
Here’s the iPhone 14 Pro, a model with the same processor as the new iPhone 15
iPhones are known for having an extremely optimized and functional iOS system, with processors that hardly heat up and crash, even under great stress. The question here is: why invest in a cell phone that will offer something equal or even inferior to a more complete model and that is even cheaper? (Yes, the iPhone 14 Pro is at least R$650 cheaper than the iPhone 15 currently).
4. Price of a car
Apple surprised the market by offering this year’s launches at a price equal to, or even lower than, last year’s launches. For example, the iPhone 14 arrived in Brazil in 2022 costing R$7,600, while the new iPhone 15 was priced at R$7,300 at launchthat is, R$300 cheaper.
I found two cars cheaper than the iPhone 15 on OLX
Apparently Apple realized that last year’s prices were already unrealistic and tried to correct the mistake this year. However, in my humble opinion, it was far from acceptable. As you have already seen in the other topics, the iPhone 15 has a previous generation processor, has a battery in serious relationship with the socket and a screen that is still in 2017 in terms of frequency. And to make matters worse, it costs more than a Fiat Palio Weekend 1.0 16V from 2002!
5. It’s a great time to buy an iPhone 13
Although we talked a lot about the iPhone 14 Pro during this article, it may not be the best option for you who want to buy directly from Apple. This is because with the launch of the new iPhones 15, Apple stopped selling some models, including the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. It’s worth remembering that you can still find them out there, in other stores, but with cost in mind. -benefit, I would really recommend buying the iPhone 13.
iPhone 13 Pro Max
Launched in 2021, the price of the iPhone 13 today is R$5,500 by the version of 128 GB, and you can choose between blue, pink, black, white, green and red. For this price, you are getting a still modern model, with practically the same performance results, cameras and battery as the new iPhone 15, and with a good amount of support time, as Apple guarantees many years of life for the iPhone 13. .
iPhone 15: Was it worth the wait?
If you’re stuck deciding whether to get the iPhone 15, it’s important to consider how big of an upgrade it will be. If you still have an older iPhone like the iPhone X, the iPhone 15 could be an excellent choice for you. However, if you already have a newer, 5G-enabled iPhone, the iPhone 15 really isn’t worth the money.
